Description:

1st. pitch: climb thru some diagonal cracks and 3 bolts. 2nd. pitch: climb up and a bit to the right then follow a line of bolts. 3rd. pitch: 5.8 pitch traverses to the right of anchor station then goes up after 1st bolt 3rd. pitch: 5.10c (Sorry Joe) From anchor go up and to the left (Kick ass pitch)

Descent Options:

This is a good route to do to get to the upper routes such as Diedre, Banana Peel and others instead of doing the hike up the trail, which is hard to find.

3 out of 5 stars Slab, Dyke, Slab, Dyke

This is a slab climb posing as a trad climb. From the open moves you get to plug some gear then surmount horizontals that allow you to clip a bolt. This seems like the theme to the climb, slab, horizontal, bolt, slab, horizontal, bolt, maybe a piece of gear. The distance between the bolts are varied but conceivably, you could do this all using the bolts if I recall correctly. The last pitch you can go right 5.8 or left .10c. We went right and it was a snap 5.8 slab.
